Bachelors of Communications

Augusta State University

The Department of Communication and Professional Writing offers programs in all forms of communication, from inter-personal to political, from electronic to theatrical. The students write public relations releases,magazine articles, songs, and television scripts; they make speeches,perform soliloquies, and narrate documentaries; they produce the college's newspaper, magazine, and plays; they create fundraising and media campaigns for community organizations and use their skills for the betterment of the community.

As a Communication major, I specialized in television-cinema. I took courses in basic communication skills and in legal, theoretical and historical aspects of the field. In these courses I learned how to make a film, write a newspaper story, plan a public relations campaign, etc. I also learned how those kinds of communication affect society, and how society affects communication. 

2005 - 2007

Georgia State University

The disciplines of communication are concerned with the processes and effects of human communication in a variety of contexts ranging from interpersonal communication through the mass media.

The major in film and video is designed to introduce students to the complexities of media art. This is reflected in the program structure, which includes critical studies (history, theory, industry, and criticism), production (film, video, digital), and writing. Students cover all of these areas throughout the degree program.
